Information about Louise

I qualified as a Biology and Chemistry teacher in 1994 and have been loving the job ever since. I offer expert tuition, combined with a kind and patient approach to students of all abilities. I live near Saffron Walden and until recently worked full time at a sixth form college in Cambridge. I have been an examiner for GCSE and A level Biology for 17 years, and use this experience to help students learn how to structure answers to gain full credit. I have tutored on a casual basis for many years, helping the children of friends and acquaintances, with great success. I am now tutoring full time.
Each lesson is tailored to the needs of the student. This could be by teaching essential factual knowledge or helping students understand what they have been taught at school. A very important part of the job is helping students with exam technique: What exactly is the question asking me? How do I go about answering it? What specialist terminology is essential in the answer? If required I can focus on study skills and revision techniques which will help factual recall and understanding. I can provide a set of notes to accompany all the topics studied and sets of exam practice questions if necessary. Lessons are always varied and could include animations, quizzes, videos, practice questions, mind maps and much more.

Availability: I am now fully booked for the academic year 2019-2020 and not able to take on any more students.

Monday-Friday 9am-6pm. Please be aware that I only tutor from home, I do not travel.

After School

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I have worked in a variety of schools and colleges, so am experienced in helping students of all ability in the 11-18 age group. My work in an international sixth form college has helped me develop a particular expertise in helping students whose first language is not English. I have worked extensively with home-schooled students.

Louise has been a great support for my son. He has gained confidence in his ability to achieve higher grades in science. He looks forward to going to the lessons even though he has completed a full week at school. Many thanks Debbie

Louise was quick with her responses. She made contact to have an informal chat so that when we started tutoring sessions there was no time wasted getting up to speed. My daughter was comfortable in her company from the outset and immediately felt the benefit of the sessions. An advantage is that Louise uses the same teaching and revision approach used by my daughter`s school.

We are delighted to have found Louise to help with A Level Biology. My daughter looks forward to her weekly session and always comes out smiling. She was struggling at AS but with Louise`s help exceeded her own expectations and achieved a grade B.

Louise is simply wonderful and I highly recommend her to anyone needing a tutor in Biology. Louise very quickly worked out the areas my 16 year old needed to focus on. She is calm, encouraging and extremely easy to talk to and has the students best interests at heart at all times.

Louise is an excellent tutor. She prepares the lessons according to the student`s needs, and offers useful work sheets and exam papers to practice with. Furthermore, she explains difficult topics with patience and precision, as well as offering useful memory/revision strategies to help you remember them. Her power-points are also well structured to match the exam board requirements. Louise is a tutor I would recommend to anyone struggling with their sciences.
